    Surprised to learn that it takes 6 and a half months to get to Mars. NASA has an impressive record of putting spacecraft in the planet. Good for them and expecting al the pictures and stories InSight has to tell.

    The time to get there may have been shorter than usual as Mars has been in sight for quite a long time. I have been spotting it very often on my way home on Mondays just after 10 pm.

    Quite an amazing result. From thousands to zero, with no broken bones.

    Brilliant.
    :D

    I have a sneaky feeling about this mission and have had since I read about it. I think examining underneath the planet is going to find something that might change the way we think about the world.

    I'm not talking alien civilisations but just pure and simple some sort of fossilized remains of something living. Would certainly be huge.

    Just a fossil of sometype of tiny bug or fish would completely change our view of the world.

    A single trace of anything organic on Mars (or anywhere other than Earth) would be the biggest news in our lifetime, fundamentally reordering our view of ourselves for ever. I hope I live to see it happen.
